    Do you realize you just agreed with me?

    Yes, my point is that shyness is related to the neuroticism dimension, but that it doesn't mean you have to be shy if you're high in that. It is possible to be really high in some dimensions of a trait and really low in others. With accommodation I am very high in all of them, but very low in dimension six, what one author calls sympathy. I also find I have a lot of high-low variation on the openness dimensions. One day I'd like to post the Big Five and their six dimensions, but that day isn't today.

    Blue, when I checked HBO's online schedule I didn't see anything like that. Also I don't know if we get HBO in this part of Vermont. It is the bush after all. Finding a Walmart is a joyous occassion.

    You did mean last Thursday?

    this article relates

    http://www.douglaslabs.com/pdf/nutri...Spring-05).pdf

    Beta waves, dopamine to NT
    Alpha waves, acetylcholine to NF
    Theta waves, GABA to SJ
    Delta waves, Seratonin to SP


    its written by an MD

    he writes that we all have a dominant neuro pathway (and it doesnt have to match up like above...you can be a dopamine SJ)


    FUN FACT: I have used/stacked almost ALL of the drugs/supplements listed for boosting acetylcholine! (the good ones are for some reason not listed on both the table and the individual paragraphs)... cant say that they make me feel my best...they do help boost short term memory and cognitive speed. They seemed to change my personality.

    I definitely feel much better when using dopamine type interactions. Did I mention that I am addicted to caffeine? (like not in the "typical" everyone-has-coffee way...)

    CRITICISM: this guy gives examples on how to manipulate each system to the benefit of the dominant type. The problem with this view is that no matter what your dominance, the acetyl-choline drugs are the most forgiving as far as how much you can fuck with that system without it being antagonistic to important functions. The dopamine system, similarly, is very unforgiving. Even for a dominant dopamine person. High amounts of dopamine can trigger dormant bi polar personalities, hallucinations, schitzo etc. High amounts of aceytlcholine just give you a few temporary muscle spasms


    Piracetam/pramiracetam have been associated with promoting delta and theta waves
    Oxiracetam/aniracetam have been associated with promoting beta and alpha waves.

    This corresponds perfectly with how the article divides up people. certain people like and respond better to a particular racetam.

    I'm gonna share the info I have from books on Big Five traits and the chemicals and systems behind them. I'm just not feeling like typing up posts these days. Lazy and busy.

    I figured GABA had to do with conscientiousness (J) since it's all about inhibiting stuff.

    the article I posted lists all the inhibitory chemicals as S and all the excitatory as N. So of course I then made the correct assumption that S's are drugged up zombies who can't think for too long until their inhibitors kick in.
